Helloooooooooo and WELCOME to "Skinny Me". I am sooooo very happy you are here!
Many of you may already know me from by other blog..."Words of Me Project". Now you are probably thinking..."Les, I know you. You are soooo busy so why the heck would you start another blog?!"
Am I right? Are you thinking that?
Well, I gotta be honest. I have thought about "Skinny Me" for quite some time now. Seriously...I have. You may remember last Spring my husband and I went on a weight loss journey together and we did pretty well. For the first time in a LONG time I lost weight! Around 14 pounds to be exact.
as time passed...
the weight has crept back on.
UGH. I hate it.
I hate the way I feel.
The way my clothes fit.
Now I 'm a writer. When I write stuff down it just "sticks". Do you know what I mean? I knew this was what I needed to do to be successful. Oh, sure I kept a journal on Words of Me but what I needed, what I wanted was a place to share all things related to eating healthy, workouts, inspiring websites, quotes, etc. I wanted a place where I could focus on this aspect of my life.
There is my creative life...then there's this life. It's the part of me, that for whatever reason I can't seem to get under control. I mean for goodness sake people...I am 44 years old. I am a wife, a mother. I have ran 2 marathons, finished a triathlon, been published in a magazine, had my own column in a a newspaper for 5 years and the list goes on.
But I have never been able to get my eating under control.
I know there is power in community.
There is magic that happens when we lift one another up...sharing our frustrations, our success's.
My goal with "Skinny Me" is to share what I know, encourage you and inspire you to be your very best. And just like my other Blog we will be using the power of WORDS to help us on the journey.
If you have a favorite weight loss blog, website, recipe or workout would you please let me know? Either leave a comment here or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
